I have three separate packages from Fasttech in route, The one sent yesterday and today I am not worried about the numbers not being able to be tracked yet, its too soon. But the first package was supposedly shipped out on the 23rd of November and its still not in the USPS system, I did a support ticket but they said it takes a few days to get in the system. Its been over a week now and nothing, I am debating taking out a dispute with paypal now,

I've ordered from FastTech a couple of times. It might still be stuck at HK or China Post office. I'd give it a couple of more days if I was you. Plus, this is the busiest shipping time of the year, there WILL be delays, especially coming from China and FREE SLOW shipping.

Pretty much gave up on tracking when tracking said my package was still in Hong Kong and showed up at my door. Oh yeah, my door is in the U.S.A.

First package I ordered from them was trackable in about 48hours through USPS's tracking site. Even showed when it was being sorted in hong kong. This one still shows untrackable and its been 2 weeks. I wasnt planning on seeing it for about a month. Just worried the numbers they are giving do not work

Others have mentioned the package still shows in HK when the mailman is dropping it in your mailbox...

A while back the tracking was better, recently I think HKP and USPS need better translators or rehire the ones they fired before tracking got all jacked up.

Out of hundreds maybe getting onto thousands of products I have ordered a soldering tip is all that has been lost or never shipped. Bunk product well that's a whole different story, kinda like the one, oh never mind.

about 12 packages Ive gotten from fasttech the tracking has always appeared and i get notification when it hits SF coming into the states...if it stays stuck at HKP it really is stuck
theres no notification if something gets rejected during screening...
all that said they now say they have begun shipping through Singapore instead of HK so only gawd knows what tracking info youre not going to get..If it had batteries, its a total crap shoot

I think once it gets past HK PO it should only take 3 days to get to you. Ive had no problems with tracking though. This was stuff I ordered a month ago and finally received over the weekend.

The only time I've ordered from FastTech it took 10 days. I did have a package from WallBuys come today that I bought right before they stopped selling e-liquid. I didn't get tracking and it took 52 days. It isn't considered lost until 55 days. Now, I've ordered a lot of stuff from them before and a few times it's been 12 days, while others have taken 3 weeks. The point is, it was free shipping from China. I rolled that dice and I had to wait unusually long this time, but it was dirt cheap and it sure feels good to get it.

Yea..prior to the HK post screening fiasco Fasttech was awesome...coop prices or better and usually about a week to get...
since then..Ive avoided batts (mix my own juice) and Ive gotten everything in about 2 weeks...Im sure they will figure it out eventually and get back to a normality on shipping batteries...just may take a little while but Im not going to be the tester

Things took a dive with the tracking and times, that's for sure. Updates have been hit or miss, when I even get them at all. Lately, I haven't been getting tracking unless it's free.

I haven't really seen a difference other then the added 1 week delay in screening as long as its not an air freight prohibited item..but they are saying they are using different postal services so tracking is probably fouled up outside of HK post

The bottle of juice was wrapped in foil and shipped by Swiss Post, that's probably why.

All 3 tracking numbers work now. They are being redirected thru Singpost now. No biggie I feel better now that they actually work.

omg tracking numbers have been ALL screwy the last few month it seems .
Had 1 stuck In California from ejuice4u.com for 5 days !
1 from MFS that has shown "ELECTRONIC SHIPPING INFO RECEIVED" for 4 days now.
1 that shows NO info since Nov.13th ( its cool accejuice.com replaced the order)
I have one that still shows its 'IN TRANSIT" and been here for 2 weeks !
its not fasttech its our joke of a postal service !

Could be. I buy stuff on eBay all the time and the tracking info will tell me "ELECTRONIC SHIPPING INFO RECEIVED" while I have the thing in my hand. Texas and California are the worst.
